  • Dream team session
  •  Good drainage and nutrient/moisture retention Tolerant to compaction Sandy loam, clay loam Is organic matter content important? ◦ Very important for root development and nutrient/moisture retention
  •  Distribution critical ◦ Pollination: < 0.2 PET ◦ Nut Size: 0.2 – 0.4 PET ◦ Oil Accumulation: 0.5 – 0.6 PET Would you utilise irrigation? ◦ Need depends on rainfall pattern ◦ Irrigation critical for Nut Size and Oil Accumulation period when rainfall inadequate
  •  Sufficient to provide economies of scale for cost efficient operations Would it be staged plantings or all in one planting? ◦ Plant schedule dependent on finance and availability of preferred grafted cultivars for the site
  •  HAES: 294-Purvis, 344-Ka’u, 508-Kakea, 800-Makai Would you use pollinators? ◦ Cultivars to serve as pollinators for each other.
  •  Minimum: 7.6 x 7.6 meters or greater What row configuration would you plant? (east/west or north/south or on the contour?) ◦ North-South What is the maximum length per row? ◦ 500-600 meters
  • Would you mound the rows? ◦ Not Necessary ◦ Grade land to allow mechanized operations(planting shade tolerant grasses?) ◦ Establish grassed water-way on a contour at 150 to 300 meter interval within the field to trap eroded soil and minimize run-off into streams.
  •  Year 5 production target = 0.03 (tonnes of SK/ha) Year 10 production target = 0.68 (tonnes of SK/ha) Year 20 production target = 1.41 (tonnes of SK/ha)
  • ◦ None What method would you use? ◦ None
  •  IPM ◦ Pesticide ◦ Natural enemies ◦ Establish habitat for natural enemies
  •  Please incorporate any additional ideas/points/issues you feel are important. ◦ Compile as much environmental data for orchard site: Climate, Soil, Irrigation ◦ Select Cultivars with compatible bloom periods, nutrient requirement, drought tolerance, pest resistance, kernel quality retention during delayed harvest. ◦ Cultivar growth rate at selected site to determine tree space and plant configuration
